Furrohk the Tamed Beast by fakefrogs
Furrohk the Tamed Beast
It has been a long time since I've drawn something that is just a stand alone piece, something just for the sake of drawing.

I started this piece last Monday while watching "Guardians of the Galaxy" with my mom.  It has nothing to do with Marvel, though.  It was just a moment where I could sit, relax, and fiddle around a bit.

This is my latest attempt at imagining one of my friend's Bionicle characters, named Furrohk.  I don't know all of his story, just the general overview.

After an assassination attempt on Mata Nui's life, Furrohk was placed on the island of Mata Nui with his powers severely diminished and his body transformed into that more akin to a rahi.  There he would remain, imprisoned, not just on the island but within his own body.  As the years pass he learns to become one with himself, learning to become humble.  As he grows in character, his body begins to return to it's natural form and his powers, the power over life and death, slowly return.

This is Furrohk after returning from his beast like form.

Hope you enjoy!!!

Be Mine: Quarian
Kind of late but...  I thought I'd do a little something for Valentine's Day.
Besides, I haven't drawn a quarian in quite awhile.

fake frogs H4 style by fakefrogs
fake frogs H4 style
It's been a while, hasn't it?  The last few months have been rough and I haven't been doing much drawing.  I feel bad about not having shared anything over the last couple months.  Sorry.  Anyways, I wanted to do a little something to let you guys know that I am still around, it's not much but...

So for the last several months my close friends and I have been getting together when we can to play Halo, whether over LIVE or through local split screen, like in ye holden days.  And to preserve these memories of fun and camaraderie, I have been recording our sessions and sharing them on Youtube.  The above drawing is something I did for the thumbnail of the most recent video to go live, and perhaps one of our best so far.

I just wanted to share the artwork and video to show a taste of what I have been doing the last month or so.  There's more I've been doing but I won't go into that right now.  So please, enjoy this animated version of my H4 spartan and please enjoy the video!  :)  Also, if you enjoy the videos and like my art style for Mass Effect characters, I have some ME3 gameplay planned that will utilize some of my art.

      Happy 14th birthday to deviantART!!!  I didn't get to join in the festivities last year so I decided I should celebrate this year along with the rest of the community.  Especially since deviantART has definitely helped me grow in my artistic endeavors.  Since joining, I have gone from doing quick sketches with pencil and paper to pushing myself with digital art.  Every step of the way I've had people encouraging me to "keep up the good work."

      I started sharing just random sketches, stuff that really only meant something to myself.  When I started to share fan art from the popular video game series Mass Effect, I started to attract some attention.  My first really well received deviation was a comic strip I had started years before but never did anything with until I joined deviantART.

Emotional attachments by fakefrogs

      The Mass Effect deviations are what have drawn the most deviants to my profile.  Even with this fact, I wasn't going to limit myself to doing just Mass Effect fan art, not when there was so much I wanted to share.
      For myself, deviantART is a safe place to share art of any kind, no matter the style or quality, and is also a place to receive and give encouragement.  Everyone needs a safe place to share what they have created.

      Not only has deviantART been a place to share artwork both old and new that normally no one would get to see, it has also helped me in developing my artistic skills and giving me a place push and test myself.  "Clyde n Owen", a comic series that started here, has helped with learning how to work with meeting self imposed deadlines.  Even though I occasionally fall short, I have been learning how to, slowly, overcome laziness and procrastination and finnish a project that I have started.  "Clyde n Owen" has been the best result of this learning curve.

      Since I started working with a digital art tablet, my skills have significantly increased and continue to grow with each new piece I complete.

Fallen Colossus by fakefrogs

      Though I have developed my own unique style, I continue to push myself to see what I am capable of doing, learning all the way.  Not every piece receives the same amount of feed back but that doesn't matter.  What matters most is that I am pleased with what I have accomplished.  I don't share for the comments, favs, or watches.  I share because I want to and you never know what might inspire someone else.
      Most of what I share is for myself yet I don't neglect those that have chosen to watch me.  Most watch for the Mass Effect fan art I share and sometimes I will put everything I've learned into one amazing piece for the fans.

          Rain on Rannoch by fakefrogs

      I can honestly say that, without deviantART, I wouldn't be where I am today artistically.  A safe place to share, to give and receive encouragement, and to learn new skills.  That is what deviantART is all about for me.  I've only been a member for a couple of years and in those few years I have grown so much.

    So thanks, deviantART!!!
    Thanks to all it's members!  Thanks to everyone who watches this little artist who goes by "fakefrogs"!

    Happy 14th B-Day!!!  Have some cake! :)

Question: when are you going to do more Mass Effect stuff?
fakefrogs Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2014
My ME stuff comes in bursts.  Right now the only consistent thing I draw is my "Clyde n Owen" comic strip.  I try to do a variety of stuff but I do understand most people watch me for the ME stuff.
